About

I'm a simple man... call me an Idol Hell Dweller if you wish.

Vocaloid Hero by acclamation not by action!

Interest: anime, trains, modelism, history, archeology, architecture & astronomy.

Watching animes since 1986, watching religiously animes since 2002, wasting my pathetic life on animes since 2009, thinking animes is truly shit since 2015 yet still liking them...

Mainly interested in garage kits. Many of them aren't listed in the database.

I collect figures and paint garage kits since early 2003, focusing mainly on bishoujo from animes I really liked (often old school) or particularly hated and thereof developed fondness (probably some case of Stockholm Syndrom!). My preference goes for larger scales such as 1/7, 1/6, 1/5 and 1/4. I have a sweet spot for sailor fuku, but that's a given.

As my collection slowly but surely grows, a few trends are emerging:

1) Characters from old school animes I loved (habitually pre-2000 titles)
2) Cheezy idols
3) Modern harmless moe bishoujos
4) Conversation pieces (mildly sexy bishoujos; bikini, armor, etc.)

If it's old, it's good!

BTW, Likantz Seaberry is the best loli. It's a shame no figure of her.

sailormatlac (1 month ago) #33810340Time flies by so fast! I also saw the one on AmiAmi, it's certainly a good deal for 10 380Y. ...
I was recently shuffling figures on my shelves and when it came to Hakufu, I let her keep her dedicated spot. Since I purchased her many years ago, she's been on my permanent display up to this day which can testify she has grown on my since then. She certainly has a lot of limitation (pale paint job typical of cold cast and wrong hair color), but that said, I still consider the sculptor did a good job representing her voluptuous body. It's definitely not that much detailed, but the proportions are right and the pose charming...To be honest, I also own ITEM #331607 and while it is technically a far superior figure in many aspect, I still think ITEM #11438 has more genuine old fashioned charm. Her belly and the way she sits certainly grab the attention. So to answer your original question, I wouldn't mind purchasing this figure again if I had to. Since you have a soft spot for oldies like that, I believe she would find a good place in your collection if you are inclined to purchase her.


Thanks for the reply. Part of me (my wallet) was hoping you'd say that you'd say that you'd gotten tired of that figure and boxed her away :).

I can completely see where you're coming from with that figure vs. the FREEing Hakufu. While I have no doubt the FREEing figure is in most ways a far superior figure, the chair Hakufu just seems to have a lot more personality; Hakufu's hook is her rather naive and clueless charm, and I think that shines through on the older figure.

EDIT: Ordered her. I think that whatever flaws she has is balanced by her cuteness and charm.

Has your opinion about ITEM #11438 changed at all over the last couple of years? One of these showed up on AmiAmi not long ago, and I was thinking about getting her. This prompted me to reread your review which was somewhat critical of the figure, but we had a discussion about Hakufu a couple of years ago (that long ago?!) and you made a comment that you were sort of getting used to some of her flaws. Any change in your opinion since then?

sailormatlac (2 months ago) #32818031Beautiful pictures as always. Your attention to carefully photograph figures is highly appreciated. I'm more convinced than ever to track down this beauty. Interestingly enough, when the "lampshade" skirt rest on the base, it really looks better. Once again, thank you very much! It will be a pleasure to read your review!

I forgot to enable comments on the review when I first posted it, so by all means please comment away if you are so inclined :).

Our discussion the other day prompted me to take some new shots of Orchid Seed's Push!! Cover Girl (I wasn't very happy with the lighting in some of the previous shots), and I'll probably get a review written sometime in the next few days. Please look forward to it!

sailormatlac (1 year ago) #16984815Yes, I do remember clearly! You had a formidable GK output! Personnaly, I can't believe it will be 15 years I'm in this hobby next month... it was yesterday!
I no longer follow the boards but I recently posted about a GK I finished and some folks from the good old times were still active. There is no boards I used to frequent that is not dying right now.
Haha I've slowed my building so much these past few years it's almost shameful. Luckily not much catches my eye and is a must-buy anymore since I've pretty much stopped watching anime so instead of bookcases full of unbuilt resin I only have one shelf :p

Forums are a dying breed which is a shame because I've found so many good tutorials and made friends from them. I know that Facebook's GK groups are pretty active (are you on there?) but other than that there aren't many options :( I don't like having to follow tons of people and 10+ websites to get content, so annoying lol

This is going to sound bizarre and out of the blue but I was looking through E20's old forums for some clear skin tutorials and recognized your username right away. I had no idea that we were both on that forum at the same time back in the day haha. And it seems like those boards are still kind of active?! How time flies...
